5 things to look for in an ideal lifestyle apartment

1. Location
Location, location, location. Where you are situated determines a range of other factors including what you have to contend with constantly. The peace of an apartment situated in peaceful and tranquil surroundings with pleasant views is far superior to being one more suburban box. Take climate into account as it can impact on your activities. Unless you are going for the rural farm alternative and getting away from it all, you want to be located close to all that you need.

2. Aesthetics
The ideal apartment is pleasing to the eye, if not outright lovely. Your surroundings have an enormous effect on how you feel: your mood and energy levels and even on how well you sleep. A sparkling, brand new dream apartment with shiny tiles and surfaces and lots of natural light is the way to go. You want a well designed, professionally thought out place where you have everything that you need and everything looks good. This is your dream.

3. Features
An apartment that is ideal has a small washing machine and dryer in the kitchen. Of course it has a dishwasher for keeping kitchen sinks and surfaces clean and tidy. If you are an elderly retiree, or going to be one, then you require some special safety features. Most accidents or falls occur in the bathroom. Grab rails on the walls inside the shower or bath and beside the toilet can prevent falls. Taps should be easy to turn on and off. The premises needs to be secure.

4. Spaciousness
Cramped and crowded is a horrible nightmare, especially if it is also dark or damp. The antithesis to such is somewhere that is spacious and light and breezy. You want a good sized main bedroom with loads of closet space. You want ample storage throughout as that prevents the accumulation of items. You want the living room to be generous with ample room for your recliner rockers facing the television. Ideally, the living room opens out on to the balcony.

5. Accessibility
You want easy access to your apartment without compromising on security and safety. In the event of a fire, you need unimpeded access to an emergency exit. Accessibility is not all about getting into your premises. It also includes factors such as your proximity to requirements such as a supermarket, newsagent and post office at the very least. It can also extend to a bakery, cafe, RSL, a bowling green and of course, the beach.
